Marie Bastian Founder/CEO
I am grounded in ethics, innovation and curiosity. I rely on my experience and intuition to identify new ways I can push the boundaries of 3D apparel. I am eager for clients and consumers to experience fashion in new and interactive ways, and I love creating products that have a positive impact on the environment and businesses.
Also important to me is for my growing team and 3D Digital Creators everywhere to foster inclusiveness and diversity throughout our journey; we have so much to learn from each other.
Reflecting on my career, I have had many impressionable experiences. One significant career achievement is having been part of Adidas’ first 2D to 3D, end-to-end business transformation. The disruption validated that transformation is possible, impactful and profitable across business segments. As a next generation Digital Creator, I helped Adidas save time, physical samples and money by developing and implementing new workflows.
My first-hand experience using 3D technology to transform all levels of business served me well; I added agile project management to my skill set. In many cases, my primary responsibility was to collaborate with cross-functional teams responsible for delivering final products to market. I also tested the new 3D end-to-end workflows through the lens of the newly trained product teams. This allowed me to evaluate the process and correct as needed.
Throughout my career, I’ve collaborated with an expansive 3D community including emerging talents, inspiring startups, established brands, smaller companies and service providers. All are new touch points for 3D fashion, and have been critical in accelerating transformation.
I’m also working with organizations from around the globe to explore augmented, virtual and mixed reality; engaging consumer experiences; efficient product workflows; and more.
Looking forward, I am excited to meet new prospects who challenge me to uncover what is possible in the world of virtual fashion.

Throughout my fashion apparel career, I have strived to be nimble and innovative, and align my personal values with my professional goals. I have learned fashion technique and strategy, and have refined my 3D design expertise along the way. I have even experienced legacy processes and organizational constraints that at times made me less productive, yet enlightened me on what I would improve in the future.
When I first started working in the fashion industry, I wanted to address waste. I knew it was common practice for organizations to produce multiple physical samples, revise them and develop final designs for mass production; I wanted to change that. It makes perfect sense that my new business venture focuses on sustainability.
to deliver 3D assets and visuals using cutting-edge software, collapsing product design and development cycle times. This new process allows us to eliminate the need for physical products, replacing them with digital-only garments.
Our goals for our clients include improving infrastructure, fostering more effective collaboration across virtual teams, and being more profitable. We will even explore augmented realities and other digital experiences showcasing new technology for the global fashion industry.
I am inspired by what fashion will look like, and excited to be part of a collaborative community that brings this new vision to life. WORLD OF MESH is my contribution for change, and I look forward to profoundly impacting the culture of fashion.
